Studio THE UNSEEN creates a 4,000 Swarovski gemstones helmet that detects user’s feelings and changes its color thanks to Magick ink
Some days ago we featured a very interesting wearable tech piece called Air and created by London-based studio THE UNSEEN: a garment made of wind-activated Magick ink that changes its color reacting to external stimuli such as wind, UV and heat.

The amazing THE UNSEEN‘s team has now unveiled a new fashiontech creation that detects and visualizes brain activity. It’s an helmet-like construction of leather, the color-changing Magick ink, and 4,000 Swarovski Black Spinel Gemstones.
The Swarovski Spinel Gemstones absorb energy loss from the head. As the brain energy levels vary, the Magick ink changes its color from black to orange, green, blue and purple. So, the Swarovski gemstones helmet by THE UNSEEN visualizes real time a different pattern depending on wearer’s feeling.
“Skin conductivity, heat, temperature, breathing patterns and emotional state all effect the aesthetic of the piece, just as our neural emotions effect our skin colour etc,” THE UNSEEN’s founder Lauren Bowker said Dezeen. “We have found the morning to produce much more orange coloured patterns at the front of the brain on the forehead, whereas in the evening the patterns tend to be much bluer and to the back right of the brain”.
The Swarovski gemstones helmet by THE UNSEEN it’s a very interesting experiment in merging fashion and technology with non-verbal human communication.
